For the past 12 years our Teens Who Care Awards have recognized youth (aged 13-19) who are making a difference in their schools, local, and global communities. We believe that youth are not always given the credit they deserve for the leadership and volunteerism they display throughout the year. Selected middle and high school students will be honored at a gala event at Lily Lake Pavilion on May 26, 2020.
